We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I am new to coding, been only doing it daily for a month or two, and I just finished my first game for android. I would like to add it to the Google Play Store with AdMob. I have registered for AdMob, and now I need to incorporate the ads to my code, however, I have no idea how to do that.
I already saw https://forum.processing.org/two/discussion/16686/how-to-add-admob and I read through all of it twice, but am still completely at a loss. The topic is really messy and riddled with trials and errors, and has code and symbols that I have never used nor understood at all, making its contents practically unreadable for someone with as little coding experience as me. What is a manifest? What's a .jar file, why do I need it and where do I get it?
I put so much effort into my game and I am so eager to see it in the store, but I just can't get past this final step.
If some kind soul could give me and, likely, the thousands of other newcomers looking for an answer, a step-by-step walkthrough of exactly what I need to download, where I need to download it, and provide an organized snippet of code that I can adapt for my program, words can't describe how grateful I would be.
Thank you all in advance!
